For years I was developing fiction based on a Nova Class. Only blueprints I ever paid for were for the Nova Class. I fucking loved these beyond belief.

They look fucking great. I immediately checked out DITL for more information when I was watching the Voyager reruns.

If you can still find deck plans online (I think Ex Astris had some but better ones came from elsewhere), you can actually see a ship with reasonable internals for the crew size, too. Obviously these are fan-developed, but its great to see.

Personally I always loved the design. Compact, small and had a logical design.

My personal head cannon, I'd like to think there are different versions of the class. Like they can be science vessels, scouts, police ships etc. All slightly different from each other. Maybe the Rhode Island is the heavier armed, more powerful version meant as a destroyer or patrol ship. Maybe could be acting in a squadron along a border.
